The world is within her grasp — quite literally so when it comes to Brie Larson, who plays Captain Marvel in the upcoming ‘Avengers: Endgame‘ (opens in Singapore today). As popular fan fiction and theories have it, she is, at present, the mightiest of all the Avengers and is set to be the one who can defeat the villain of the show, Thanos.
It was just yesterday when the global premiere for the hotly anticipated ‘Avengers: Endgame’ took place at the Los Angeles Convention Center. As the cast took turns to pose before the photo wall, the 29-year-old American actress, Brie Larson’s hands caught our attention.
Devoid of the usual red carpet diamond-encrusted high jewellery, Larson instead opted to dress her Celine by Hedi Slimane couture dress with five rings with coloured gemstones and a bracelet with one gemstone — all set on yellow gold.
See the uncanny resemblance to Thanos’ glove — otherwise known as the Infinity Gauntlet?
Brie Larson and her fashion stylist, the Los Angeles-based Samantha McMillen, reportedly approached the jewellery designer, Irene Neuwirth, requesting for these Avengers-inspired pieces.
Perched atop Larson’s hand are (from her thumb), the green Time stone, the red Reality stone, the orange Soul stone, the purple Power stone, and the blue Space stone. On her wrist is the yellow Mind stone.
Does Captain Marvel eventually retrieve the glove from Thanos, defeating him along the way? Or does she get help from the other Avengers?
At the global premiere, Scarlett Johansson, who plays the role of Black Widow, sported a similar Infinity Gauntlet-inspired jewellery piece.
Of all the cast members present at the premiere, it seems like these were the only two characters who wore the Infinity Gauntlet. Do they team up to offer the world salvation from Thanos?
Either way, ‘Avengers: Endgame‘ opens in Singapore today.
